One of our long-term goals is the study, broadening, and capture of pictorial
style for computer depiction. A broader variety of
styles is important because some styles are better at conveying various types of information or mood.
In addition, separating style and content allows for higher-level picture manipulation. We also believe that capturing the style of skilled artists can allow unskilled users to recombine elements of a well-refined depiction craft with their content, thereby producing more compelling pictures.

The Art and Science of Depiction (Spring 2001)
This class explores perceptual and technical aspect of pictures, and more precisely the depiction of reality on a 2D medium. The focus is on an in-breadth multidisciplinary approach. Here are the slides of a talk I gave at the University College of London to outline the class. And here is a more recent version given at Stanford (1 slide per page or 6 slides per page)
